Worst Rovers 11

Recommended Posts

Following on from the joy of thinking of some our best players in our best PL 11, thoughts turned to some of our worst. I wasn't really focussing on the imposter mercenaries like Best, Murphy, Etuhu. They clearly had talent underneath their money grabbing, lazy personas. Or even the Portuguese pub players we were landed with to make some agents very rich, around the same time. I was just thinking of those players we've had that have been useless.

Steele

Orr Peacock Greer Berner

 Goulon Lowe Williamson

Ward  Brown  Modeste

Subs

Fettis

Dailly

Greer

Akpan

Koita

Treacy

Stokes

Paul McKinnon always springs to mind when talking about worst players. We bought him from a non league team where he scored for fun but he actually left Rovers owing us a goal (he scored an og but none at the right end). Way out of his depth. Dave Hargreaves (RIP) had a poor time of it  at professional level under similar circumstances as I recall.

Never saw him play but heard terrible things of Richard witscghe (however that’s spelt ) not just his ability but had a really divisive attitude. If anyone can remember him ?

there have been so many poor players under the venky reign I think it should be pre venkys worst 11 because I could name a squad of 30 post

Yeah, played one game away at West Ham in the 94-95 season. Looked very average.

Didn't Curry score the winner at Maine Road in the old second division once? And should have done likewise in a League Cup game at Spurs but for an awful decision to disallow it (against a Spurs side containing the likes of Gazza and Waddle if I remember correctly). Don't think he gets anywhere near a worst Rovers 11 to be honest.

im`e basing it on him continually disapearing,not turning up for training and genuinly being a pillock when his opinion of his own ability did`nt match his true ability,25 games in two and a half seasons says it all

He was a bit of a dick and definitely an underachiever, absolutely no doubt about that.

Petrovic is a great shout. Played in the relegation season against Toon at home. Was like bambi. Terrible. That was the game Modeste missed about three sitters. He was garbage too.

We're all in agreement that Fettis starts?

Apart from that you've got to make the distinction between bad attitude (Orr, Duffy, Best, Stokes, (Emnes and Joao, according to Mowbray))

Got games but were useless (Andrews, Lowe, Brown, Petrovic, Goodwillie)

Were so bad they barely got playing time (A.Anderson, P.Pederson, Myles Anderson, Portugeezers)

Realistically I want to choose players who actually played a decent number of games as one match here or there isn't really representative...let's see how it goes:

Alan Fettis

Bradley Orr

Darren Peacock

Gordon Greer

Gary Croft

Keith Treacy

Jason Lowe

Hope Akpan

Matty Holmes

David Goodwillie

Chris Brown

poor keith,he did take some major abuse🙂,honestly i though he brought it on himself by trying to be something he was`nt,in his mind he was up there with zidane,in reality he was a player from the bottom division who got lucky

Matty Holmes

 

 

I don't think Matty Holmes was a bad player. He just wasn't the signing you needed or expected when you had just been crowned champions of England and were playing in the Champions League.

Just had a look on wikipedia at what happened to his career and he had a career ending injury soon after he left us to go to Charlton.

For everyone picking Orr, yeah he was a bell and but not a bad fullback. Just not very good. Ribeiro, however. Sheesh!

It always felt that Holmes was bought off the back of his performance for West Ham on the last day of the season...and that wasn't necessarily representative of his regular ability. Maybe I'm being harsh but he was a big disappointment, but you're right...we should have been looking to sign a higher quality of player at that point

Robbie Fowler probably wouldn’t have made the team but he was particularly sh!te in my book. He was only 33 when he came and bearing in mind the player he had been, particularly for Liverpool, he was a major disappointment in his all too brief stay at Ewood.
